Aromandina’s Woman’s Joy treatment is intended to provide relaxation and comfort with the pampering qualities of feminine essential oils: geranium, lavender and clary sage.

This treatment begins with a gentle mist followed by a soothing oil designed for reestablishing mood balance and relaxation, and then a warm compress to the abdomen. We will pay particular attention to the head and scalp relieving any tension that tends to focus there.

History of Aromatherapy and Romance

For thousands of years, people have used scents and aromas for love and sensuality. In ancient Egypt and Rome, bathing with essential oils was part of the ritual of preparation for lovemaking. Cleopatra, one of the most renowned lovers of all time, is reputed to have scented the sails of her royal barge with rose water to seduce Mark Antony as she sailed to meet him. Today, the perfume industry is a multibillion- dollar business based on the notion that fragrance makes us more attractive to each other. Nature’s essential oils have been used to heal the body, enhance life, evoke memories and seduce.

How Essential Oils Work

The aromatic molecules are inhaled and carried to the olfactory membrane, the place from which millions of nerve endings send signals to the brain. The scents are analyzed in different centers of the brain for memories and emotional and sexual responses. There’s a logical explanation for scent’s powerful effect on romance: there are studies that show that essential oils can act directly on the limbic system of the brain, the center of our emotions, memories and sexual behavior. Essential oils can affect your mood, emotional well-being and desires. The use of essential oils can help enhance self-confidence, radiate vibrancy, and increase sensitivity. Some essential oils can be stimulants, others aphrodisiacs, others euphoric or sedative. Their scents stimulate the mood and psyche creating erotic sensations and awakening desire.

Essential Oils for Romance:

  • PATCHOULI – Voluptuous, evident, suggestive, sensual. Reaches deep into the emotions and helps to decrease inhibition and to enable the release of emotions.
  • YLANG YLANG – Exotic, intense and exciting. it’s believed that its stimulating and healing properties can help in cases of impotence and frigidity. It can help dispel feelings of anger, jealousy and envy.
  • CARDAMOM Its aroma helps clear the mind and stimulates the appetite for love. Spicy and profoundly sensual in nature.
  • CLARY SAGESeductive, sensual and mildly intoxicating, exhilarating and euphoric. Soothes stress and anxiety and helps to remove fears and emotional blocks allowing for a deeper communication between partners.
  • GRAPEFRUIT – Instills self-confidence and positivity. It’s tart scent invites playfulness and brightens up the day.
  • MANDARIN – Fresh, young and playful. Mandarin adds joy and lightness to any aromatherapy blend. Enhances emotional well-being.
  • LEMON Stimulant, refreshing, restores the nervous system. Applied through massage, it can help to improve circulation. Adds joy and lightness to any aromatherapy blend.

Setting the stage for romance:

I was doing my annual inventory count which involves transferring the essential oil liquids from their container into a measuring cylinder to see how many milliliters I have. I simply love this annual task because it gives me an opportunity to connect with the wonders of essential oils all over again. On regular days, when we handle small bottles of these oils, we tend to forget their origin, the plant where they came from, and their color.

BLUE:

 

This inky-blue liquid that you see here is German Chamomile (Matricaria recutica).  If you have ever had a cup of chamomile tea, you would probably remember the color to be greenish or yellowish. Now, look again at this picture – doesn’t look like chamomile by a mile, right? 
One of the main components of German Chamomile is Chamazulene which gives this oil its blue color.  This component is not present in the fresh flower but is only produced during the process of distillation.

Chamazulene, present in some volatile oils, is markedly anti-inflammatory and antiallergenic.

Just by looking at the color of the oil, one can determine its therapeutic qualities:
– Since blue is a ‘cooling’ color, think about all the ‘hot’ conditions that this refreshing oil is going to counteract.
 – On the emotional front, blue chamomile has a very strong influence in soothing the solar plexus – the major nerve center located in the stomach area.
According to Gabriel Mojay, the solar plexus is the vital center of our psychological needs and wants.  When negative or ‘hot’ feelings like frustration, chronic tension and insomnia appear, the cooling blue effect of this oil helps in restoring balance.

In the physical plane, hot conditions such as irritable bowel, inflammation and spasms, can be easily relieved with the topical application of this oil when combined with a carrier oil.

RED:

Red, the warmest of all colors, signifies passion, heat and vitality
Red is extroverted, just like the substance in this bottle.  The absolute extracted from the Jasmine flower is a bright, sensual red and helps shed inhibitions.
It helps introverts come out of their shells and helps a couple revive the ‘heat’ in their relationship. It is very effective in driving away depression and fueling passion, libido and self-esteem when a person is feeling down and low.

ORANGE: 

 This orange liquid here is Sweet Orange essential oil.  This organic oil comes from Argentina and just by looking at its bright happy color, one can’t help but smile.
Orange i
s an uplifting, joyful oil.  It has a cleansing quality that clears a saddened heart and physically too, it helps purify the liver.
I use it in severa
l blends for digestion, and detoxifying because of its digestive, lymphatic, gastric and sedative properties.



So, the next time you hold a bottle of essential oil, think of the beauty of its color and the great emotional therapeutic properties that the plant is providing
to you.

Parties are always something to look forward to but entertaining so many people at once can be daunting and even stressful at times.

It is not the clothes, decorations or even the food that makes a party a hit – it is the atmosphere.

A host cannot stop worrying about how the guests will get along with each other and whether they will have a good time at all. Luckily for you, we have a solution.

Take a break from the holiday stress and create a pleasant, relaxing, comforting and jovial environment for all your guests with a little help from aromatherapy.

Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang, help people shed their inhibitions and be themselves. While Clary Sage’s scent has a euphoric quality, Ylang Ylang works at eliminating negative emotions like jealousy and envy. They blend perfectly with Litsea Cubeba, a sharp citrus scent that integrates these two flowers and provide emotional well-being.

The heartwarming aroma of this blend induces a friendly and positive atmosphere and you will find your guests more spirited, relaxed and outgoing.

So the next time you are worried about awkward moments between a cousin and a colleague, you know what to turn to! How to do it? Pour a few drops in an aromatherapy burner you can also put some drops on the light bulbs. If you prefer mix the oils with some water and put them in a spray bottle and mist the area where your guests are going to be.

Spare no space for stress when it’s time to party and have fun!

Aromandina recommends: Alegria Essential Oil, a balanced combination of Litsea Cubeba, Ylang Ylang and Clary Sage.

Keep depression, grief and negative emotions at bay with this uplifting blend. This oil provides emotional well-being and work together to cheer up your mood and brighten your day. A happy mind is the key to happier relationships and success.

What’s your secret to be stress free when you host a party?

Nov 29 2010 This treatment is designed to assist in the flow of energy throughout the body, physically, mentally and emotionally. It particularly focuses on bringing peaceful balance to overworked adrenal glands.
It is ideal for clients suffering from chronic fatigue and adrenal exhaustion.

We will begin with a light, relaxing and gentle mist followed by a combination of alternating warm and cold compresses to your kidneys and adrenal glands. Following the compresses will be an invigorating massage.
As their adrenal glands are brought back into balance your body will reestablish its strength, vitality and sustained energy throughout the day.

Products in the treatment:

Energia Essential Oil
Alerta Body Mist
Adrenal Support Body Oil

Supplies on Hand:

2 Hand Towels

Room Set Up:

Hand towel soaking in crockpot filled with 1 tbs of table salt previously mixed with 5 drops of  Energia Essential Oil on low setting.
Hand towel soaking in bowl filled with cold water.

Table Set Up:

Set up the table for a massage 1 drop Energia Essential Oil on face cradle

Home Care Products:

Alerta Body Mist

Procedure:

  1. Start client prone. Mist your client’s body using Alerta Body Mist.   Hold the bottle 2 – 3 feet from client with the nozzle facing toward the ceiling and spray the mist upward. The mist will fall gently on the skin and feel like the mist in a rainforest.
  2. Wring out the hot water from the hand towel that is in the crockpot and lay over the kidneys and adrenal area. With a flat hand press the hot water into the adrenal tissue and gently rock back and forth.
  3. Wring out cold water from the hand towel that is in the cold water bowl. Before placing the hand towel on the client ask them to take a deep breath and let them know that on the exhale you will be placing an cold compress on their kidney area. The tendency will be for them to contract their muscles and hold their breath. Let them know it is better to relax and continue to exhale as the cold compress is placed over the kidneys. This will help them release the toxins and tension held in their body. With a flat hand press the cold water into the tissue.
  4. Alternate hot and cold compresses 3x each.
  5. Massage with Adrenal Support Body Oil using fast invigorating strokes. In your mind’s eye see your client full of energy and life. As you massage let that energy flow from your hands into your client.
